Do you dream of birthing with a sense of calm, trust, and joy, instead of fear, tension and pain? The HypnoBirthing® Class Series will open your mind to these possibilities and so much more! This class will prepare you and your partner for all things childbirth, it will empower you with a variety of coping techniques, and will teach you to approach your birth with confidence, excitement, and empowerment.


Having a baby is a bit like climbing Mt. Everest. If you were to climb Mt. Everest, you’d likely hire a sherpa, someone who knows the land, can read the weather and knows the technical aspects of climbing very well. A doula is like a sherpa for you and your partner, someone who is trained and experienced in childbirth and can help you navigate a safe, satisfying, and empowering birthing experience.



Your baby’s first instinct is to find the breast and begin suckling. The American Association of Pediatrics and the World Health Organization recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the baby’s first six months to achieve optimal growth, development, and health. As a certified lactation counselor, Ellie is here to support you and your baby on your journey to successful breastfeeding.


Beyond Birth was created to fill the void that so many mothers feel after having a baby. It is a very exciting time but it also comes with considerable demands and a huge change in lifestyle and priorities, leaving many women feeling as though they’ve lost themselves amidst the exhaustion, monotony, and stress of caring for a baby. Beyond Birth is so much more than a postpartum support group. It is an educational, enriching program for all mothers– regardless of how old her baby is or how many children she has– offering the opportunity for meaningful connections and lasting friendships.


If there’s ever a time in your life to focus on optimal nutrition, this is it! Nutrition, movement, and mindset are so important to a healthy, glowing and energized pregnancy, birthing, and postpartum experience. Our Certified Nutritional Therapy Consultant and Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Katharine Murphy, offers support for a nourished, enjoyable, and healthful body and baby.
